    The best advice I have is to avoid burning any bridges. I've been amazed over the years how many people that have connections with schools or people I've taught in/with, etc.

    You said the administration already knows your concerns.. is there anyone that you can reach out to? A fellow teacher? Is this a school or district you want to get another job in? Can you hold out and finish up your assignment?

    I don't suggest staying if you've tried everything and you don't want to work with the district and you're miserable. BUT, sometimes a hard situation teaches you quite a bit about the important parts of having a classroom- management, discipline, no paras, no support- because unfortunately, there are many places that you deal with the same thing.

    I first suggest trying to reach out to someone and try to stick it out- if you want to work in that school/district again. But, you shouldn't keep yourself in a dangerous position either.......

    Yeah, it was about a new teacher who took over a class and was having some problems and had concerns about her class. She was thinking about resigning and didn't know how best to approach it. That's mostly what I remembered from the post.
